WhiteHat Security Selected as SC Media 2020 Trust Award Finalist

SAN JOSE, Calif.,  Dec. 23, 2019 — WhiteHat Security, an independent subsidiary of NTT Security and a leading application security provider, today announced that the WhiteHat Application Security Platform has been recognized as a Trust Award finalist in the Best Web Application Solution category for the 2020 SC Awards. The finalists and winners for the Trust Awards are chosen by an expert panel of judges with extensive knowledge and experience in the cybersecurity industry. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony on Feb. 25, 2020 in San Francisco.

As the pioneer and market leader in application security testing, WhiteHat Security provides industry-leading accuracy and speed to automate security across the entire software development life cycle (SDLC). With a risk-based approach to application security, WhiteHat provides customers with the ability to strike a balance between accelerating business innovations while minimizing business risks.

WhiteHat does this through its SaaS solution, which continuously assesses risk for businesses’ software assets. This approach helps businesses embed security within the SDLC and provides developers the tools and services they need to securely develop software.

“Every new year brings with it an unpredictable mix of adversity and opportunity for information security professionals,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “In 2019, we watched as software supply chain attacks grew bigger and bolder, DNS hijacking campaigns threatened the very integrity of the internet, and targeted ransomware attacks disrupted the operations of cities, school districts and organizations in the health care, industrial and transportation sectors. Through it all, this year’s SC Awards finalists found ways to break boundaries, overcome challenges and contribute fresh new ideas to the world of cybersecurity.”

Now in its 23rd year, SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of cybersecurity professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers who offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the SC Awards’ Trust Award category.

“It is a great honor for WhiteHat to once again be named an SC Award finalist,” said Craig Hinkley, CEO, WhiteHat Security. “Being shortlisted for this prestigious award is yet another validation of the work we are doing at WhiteHat to make secure DevOps a reality throughout and beyond the development life cycle for our customers. No matter how many websites or applications our customers need to secure, we are here to meet any demand.”

 “Cyberattacks and data mismanagement can result in major financial losses, regulatory penalties and a damaged reputation,” added Armstrong of SC Media. “That’s why it’s reassuring that companies such as WhiteHat Security are developing leading-edge solutions to bolster cyber defenses. For that, we honor them today.”
